Clothing brand, Latuza, takes a step towards fashion sustainability by making pyjamas and basics with bamboo viscose fabric. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and plastic waste is one of the fastest-growing problems in the world. Latuza has recognised the untapped power of bamboo and its potential to move fashion towards a sustainable future.
Much of the world’s clothing is made from viscose, acrylic or polyester; all of these fancy ways to say plastic. When these clothes are washed, tiny plastic fibres break off and enter the world’s water supply, eventually ending up in the ocean. Latuza is using bamboo viscose to reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in the ocean and reduce their reliance on non-renewable materials, according to Latuza.
The eco-friendly nature of bamboo viscose is not its only benefit. Bamboo viscose also wicks away moisture, prevents odour, and regulates temperature. Their pyjamas are perfect for anyone who encounters unwanted night sweats. Latuza carries primarily pyjama sets as well as some closet staples such as the women’s summer flowy tunic top for leggings.
